If you are craving authentic Philadelphia cuisine, this is the place. The pizza is the same quality you will find in the “Pizza Belt” and should be on your must-order list. It is crispy, served on homemade dough and topped with freshly shredded mozzarella and other great options. The cheesesteaks are served on Amoroso’s bread straight from Philly; no need to travel 2,400 miles to the City of Brotherly Love. Try the traditional cheesesteak, served with fried onions, or the Nor’easter, with bacon, onions, cheese, mayo and pickles. Sit back with friends and family while watching your favorite sports and take advantage of the full bar stocked with local craft beers, wine and cocktails. Other food options include hoagies, burgers, wings, salads and Philly soft pretzels. Happy hour is Monday-Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. Call for fast takeout orders. Packaged beer and liquor is available.
Eleanor’s has all the perks of fine dining, minus the dress code. By serving rich, saucy dishes in a warm and friendly setting, this joint lives up to its reputation. And on top of one of the most creative menus in town, Eleanor’s is a primo brunch spot on Sunday afternoons. Plus, its bar alone is an attraction, thanks to reasonably priced drinks and a loyal crowd, a wine list that is second to none and a dedication to service that stems directly from its owners.
This little place isn’t such a best-kept secret anymore, as more locals and visitors alike are discovering the down home goodness within. But longtime regulars as well as newcomers still fill the tables nightly. This small restaurant has seen a few incarnations over the years, but it has succeeded in making it one of the most charming and consistently award-winning and rewarding dining experiences in town.
Featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and including a game room for kids, 40 televisions for sports fans and an array of food options, “the Winder” — as it’s known among locals — is a sure hit for lunch, dinner or a snack. The extensive bar offers 30 beers on tap and a comprehensive menu that will give you so many choices that you may not be able to narrow them down. So don’t. Share a few plates of appetizers, such as pot stickers, hot wings or a Sidewinders pretzel. Then try a burger or perhaps a steak from the new custom steak menu. Options include tri-tip, New York or skirt steak and your choice of topping and sauce. If you are in the mood for pizza, opt to build your own whole or slices of pizza (the carne asada is to die for). Swing by during the big game, prepare for a party and pick your seats carefully based on your favorite team’s fans.
